Earlier this week, a little-known rapper who goes by the monicker "Rob Hustle" released a song that's quickly racking up views on Youtube.

Titled 'Call the Cops,' it's a catchy tune, but a depressing catalogue of some of the most prominent recent abuses committed by law enforcement in recent years. Hustle warns that when you call the cops, you often put your own life at risk. It's a problem that Reason readers are certainly familiar with. His music video shows countless clips of officers punching, pepper spraying, and otherwise brutalizing people.

The first transcontinentals were all creatures, not of capitalism or the private markets, but of government.

When Barack Obama used the transcontinental railroads as an example of the wonderful things that can be accomplished with grandiose government programs, he was attacked for mistakenly referring to the railroads as "inter continental." Notably, he was attacked by approximately no one for talking up a government program that in reality should be best remembered as a pioneering feat in government corruption, corporate welfare, and immense waste.

A prominent law professor and avowed supporter of the Obama White House will tell the House on Wednesday that the president has created one of the biggest constitutional crises in the country's history and will endorse House Republicans' effort to sue to rein him in. Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University, will say President Obama is trampling the founders' vision for the country in his push to circumvent Congress, and he will demand Republicans and Democrats alike forget their party labels to unify against this White House's power grab.

You can never know when disaster will strike, but you can be prepared. One of the best ways to prepare for unexpected disaster is to have and prepare a bug-out bag. So what is a bug-out bag and what should go into a bug-out bag?

Wikipedia defines a Bug-out Bag as a portable kit that contains the items one would require to survive for seventy-two hours when evacuating from a disaster. First things first, you need to choose your bag. When deciding on what kind of bag you are going to use you should consider size, functionality, color and durability/quality. You want to make sure that your bag is big enough to carry everything you need and that you utilize every compartment accordingly. You should consider using a high quality back-packing type of bag as oppose to a book bag that you would use for school. Back packing type bags are specifically designed for outdoor use. They are also designed in such a way so that the weight of your bag is properly and evenly distributed throughout your hips, back, chest and shoulders. This is done through the use of straps and buckles. Make sure you learn the right way to strap your bag on before going out.

The Pentagon's research lab has funded dozens of studies concerning the use of social media, the Guardian reported on Tuesday, raising further questions about what kind of data is of interest to governments around the globe.

Just days after a report published by researchers at Facebook revealed that users of the social media site had been manipulated for science, Ben Quinn and James Ball at the Guardian wrote this week that DARPA - the Pentagon-run Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency - has in one way or another funded several studies recently that set out to explore that social networking site, as well as users of Twitter, Pinterest, Kickstarter and others. The journalists' report stems from a list of publications that went live on DARPA's site late last month concerning its Social Media in Strategic Communications, or SMISC, program. "The general goal of the Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) program is to develop a new science of social networks built on an emerging technology base," a statement there reads. "Through the program, DARPA seeks to develop tools to support the efforts of human operators to counter misinformation or deception campaigns with truthful information."

A woman charged with performing sexual acts involving two pets and forcing a 6-year-old-boy to perform sex acts on her is back at work as a deputy director at the Centers for Disease Control.

Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey, 44, is the deputy director of the CDC's Laboratory Science, Policy and Practice Program Office (LSPPPO). She is charged with multiple counts of child molestation and one count of bestiality, according to CBS affiliate WGCL in Atlanta. Lindsey was arrested October 10 following a six-week investigation by the DeKalb County police. Police say they unearthed evidence that a 6-year-old boy was involved in sex acts with Lindsey and her boyfriend Thomas Westerman, a fellow CDC employee who is also charged in the case. The child molestation allegedly took place between January and August of 2010 at Lindsey's home in Decatur, Ga.

Michigan law requires public officials to hold formal meetings out in the open and allow citizens to attend.

Despite this requirement, the University of Michigan Board of Regents routinely conducts its affairs behind close doors, away from public scrutiny. It is assumed that the regents and the president actually debate matters at these secret meetings. At the (sham) public meetings, the regents almost always vote unanimously in favor or against whatever proposals are on the table-with little debate-lending credibility to the charge that the real decisions are being made elsewhere. In the last year, the regents voted on 116 public matters, and only 8 of those times were there any dissenting votes.

Close to nineteen months have passed since the event known as the Sandy Hook Massacre transpired.

Amazingly, there has still been no conclusive evidence put forth by any of the families affected or the investigators involved to dispel the many 'conspiracy theories' that have evolved from the event. In fact, new mysteries seem to expose themselves even more as time passes by. From Douglas Cottle, who died Sept 29, 2012, at age 62 to Michael Bellmore, who died May 3, 2014 at age 27, more questions than answers seem to arise. The Connecticut State Police Commander, the Connecticut State Police Commissioner, the Western Connecticut State Police Commander as well as the Connecticut State Medical Examiner have all been eliminated from the story either by retiring or death. What better way to cover up any possibility of ever disclosing the truth ? What better way to perpetuate conspiracy theories?

Independent journalist Matthew Grunert was gathering footage for a film he was making.

He was photographing the NYS Police Academy - a campus of three publicly accessible buildings located next to the SUNY campus. Grunert was approached first by a female trooper who refused to identify herself. Later, Investigator Thompson (5257), Major Timothy Monroe (3423), and Trooper Smith (5286) detained Grunert despite him having committed no crime. He identifies himself to officers, explains why he was there, yet was still detained.

What libertarians have to explain to the politically disengaged and uninformed

If libertarians want to change how nonlibertarians think about government, they will need to understand how nonlibertarians think about government. By "nonlibertarians," I mean the majority of people who spend little if any time pondering political theory or what Murray Rothbard called political ethics. They may focus at times on particular government programs and actions, or on proposals for new programs, but rarely about government as an institution. This is not hard to understand. We all come into a world full of national governments that present themselves as providers of a social safety net, guarantors of products and services, protectors of workers, defenders of the national borders, and dispensers of benefits to an assortment of deserving groups (farmers, exporters, too-big-to-fail banks, low-income people, and so on). This is all represented as indispensable to the general welfare.
